Shalfleet Parish Council News August 2019

Shalfleet Parish Council News

Meetings: The Parish Council does not meet during the month of August. However a number of issues continue to crop up.

Advertising: Large mobile adverting hoardings have appeared in the layby next to Shalfleet House. The Highways Authority have been asked to investigate.

Black Poplar Tree: A large tree in Fleetway has become dangerous.  Nobody accepts responsibility for the tree, or the land it stands on. The Parish Council will consider at its next meeting if they should pay to have it felled or not. If it is felled the Council may look to plant a replacement Oak tree which seem to thrive in Shalfleet.

We would be grateful to know who owns the land.

5G:  The Parish Council accept that they do not know enough regarding the issues raised by the upgrading to the mobile telephone systems. The Council supports the Isle of Wight Association of Local Councils (IWALC) in its efforts to clarify matters.

Scams: Trading Standards are hoping to make people aware of a number of current scams. They are particularly concerned regarding the elderly who live alone. They advise that if you are unsure regarding an e-mails origin then do not open any attachments. Be cautious regarding uninvited telephone callers or callers at the door. There are current scams offering to service solar panels and thermal tubes. Some scams start by saying money has been taken from your bank accounts. In case of doubt please contact Trading Standards 01983 823371

Electronic Communication: People are reminded that they can register their e-mail address with the Parish Council. They will then receive an early copy of Parish Council News. E-mail: Sally Woods (Parish Clerk) –

Steve Cowley

Chair of Shalfleet Parish Council

Next meeting:  4th September 2019 Newbridge Community Centre 7.15 pm
